Even as dentists, we are amazed at how far dentistry has come. Today, we have some simply incredible treatments and technology at our fingertips and we’re excited to offer our clients an impressive array of services, including same-day tooth restorations. Thanks to a form of technology known as Cerec, our clients don’t have to wait weeks for a new custom-made restoration. We can restore your teeth in just one day.
The ins and outs of Cerec
Cerec is an amazing form of technology, which shortens treatment time dramatically, enabling patients to benefit from same-day crowns and veneers. Before the days of Cerec, we had to create impressions of the tooth, which were sent away to a dental laboratory. Dental technicians used these impressions as moulds for the new restorations and we fitted them once they were ready, usually around 2 weeks later. With Cerec, the waiting game is over and we can now provide a same-day service.
Cerec utilises images of the teeth to create detailed templates, which are passed on to the on-site milling machine. The bespoke restoration is then fabricated and your dentist can fit it as soon as it is ready. The entire process can be completed at the clinic in a single appointment.
The benefits of Cerec for patients
Cerec offers a host of benefits for patients, including:
- Reduced treatment times and only one appointment required
- No need for putty moulds or temporary restorations
- Greater accuracy
- Bespoke restorations in just one day
- Enhanced comfort
